Thank you, Cheryl! 😊

My students and our own kiddos at home really enjoy this one!

I really like all the ‘pumpkin posts’! 🎃

These are all AWESOME! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much, JJ!

We’ve also had some fun at home with this activity this year! 🎃

Thanks for curating these, Cheryl! There have been some fun Halloween-related posts in recent weeks!

Thanks for sharing these options, Cheryl. Eoin and you have helped me with these ideas for some Halloween/El Dia de Los Muertos fun!

No problem, Marianne!

Oh this would be great with Dia Del L’os Muertos activities too. I’d love to see what you all create around that!

Love this, Eoin! Like Cheryl, I hadn't fully considered the creative possibilities of the eraser.

Thanks, Jessica!

Yes! The Eraser FTW 🙌

It reminds me a little of some projects I did in Art class when I was in school. 🎨 🖌️

Love these ideas! Is there a way to "subtract" with the newest Keynote update by chance?

Thank you

Posted on October 09, 2023

Thanks a lot! Yes, the subtraction tool works with it (doesn’t need the latest update).

If you a shape from Shapes Library, you can subtract this from the pumpkin.

Select both the shape you want to subtract and the pumpkin itself.  

But, you can’t subtract shapes you have drawn with the Drawing tools in Keynote.

Hopefully the attached screenshot helps a bit!
